Tredwell named in provisional 30-man England squad for ICC Champions Trophy

The England selectors today named Kent Cricket captain, James Tredwell in a provisional 30-man squad for the ICC Champions Trophy to be played in England and Wales in June.

The squad, which includes four uncapped players, Gary Ballance, Varun Chopra, James Harris and Chris Wright, will be reduced to 15 by May 5th.

National Selector Geoff Miller said: “This is a balanced squad which will provide the selectors with strong options in all areas and reflects players’ performances for both the senior England teams and the England Lions and EPP squads over the winter period.

“With this country hosting the tournament for the first time since 2004, there will be every incentive for England to perform well and we anticipate intense competition for places in our final squad which will be named early next month.”
